    "Compulsive listening"

    I was so caught up in this story, that I listened to it at work, at night, and most of the day!

    "Excellent book."

    A really gripping tale (especially for the first half) and it is read very well. The characters came to life for me. Well recommended.

    Story
    "Great book and brilliantly read"

    This book was full of surprises. From the tentatively intriguing beginning to the shocking climactic twist and many points to keep you guessing it really is a unique story.

    "Absolutelty fabulous in every way!"
    Any additional comments?

    I have never purchased anything from this author before but I was hooked straight away! I bought the most recent Dalzeil and Pascoe book as soon as I'd finished as it uses the same narrator.

    Story
    "Brilliant book - engaging from start to finish"
    What made the experience of listening to The Woodcutter the most enjoyable?

    Enjoyed the main character, his view on life and his ingenuity


    What other book might you compare The Woodcutter to, and why?

    It's a bit like a middle-aged Bourne identity


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Couldn't wait to get back to it and see where the story was going

    Story
    "first rate read/listen"
    What made the experience of listening to The Woodcutter the most enjoyable?

    The good use of character voices throughout but still very clear to understand.


    What did you like best about this story?

    You are never quite sure until the end of the true nature of the characters. The story has lots of twists and turns that are not easily foreseen. The characters are believable and you gain some sympathy with them.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    there are many good scenes throughout the book. Right from the outset where the police turn up to arrest him the words paint pictures in your mind.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes but I couldn't due to time constraints but also a book that I didn't want to finish as I felt attached to the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    A book I can thoroughly recommend to anyone.

    Story
    "A good story!"
    What did you like most about The Woodcutter?

    Lots of twists and turns, nicely paced, generally interesting


    What does Jonathan Keeble bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    I think it was read very well (not sure about the cumbrian accent, but that's a minor point!)


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No - too long, but still absorbing for a long story


    Any additional comments?

    Worth a listen!
